Right right..Its clear that his was more involved.

Yeah, but your job was better cause you used a Tappan (just a little biased, not a lot. Just a little bit).

If so, it doesn't give you good air flow.
If you have temp delta issues later.
You may want to put a square/rectangle to round transition on, to improve return air flow.
Connecting round to it like that, creates a lot of turbulance.
Probably gives you about a 100 to 150' equivalent length on that connection alone.

Just something to thing about.
The return flex is connected to the furnace with a small plenum and 16" starting collar made at a sheetmetal shop.

The 8" supply flex is connected via sheetmetal saddles for the 12" line that I custom made.
